there's nothing to see here folks

This is my third week joining the Company Girls for a coffee blog-chat...and I have a confession to make. Just feel like I should be up front and honest with my new coffee friends. I don't like coffee. There. I said it. I don't want to hide behind the laptop any longer...I am not drinking coffee. I don't like it. I realize that makes me a social misfit of sorts in the starbucks generation. To make matters worse, I also don't like tea....ooooh, how I wish I liked tea. It's good for you they say--especially if it's green. I've tried. Don't like it. Not even the iced version. No secrets here--my caffienated beverage of choice is diet coke. But since it's coffee-time, I'll put it in a mug and try to fit in. :)

it even looks like coffee, huh? I'm so sneaky.

Well, this week has been fairly uneventful, and for this I'm happy. Nothing to take for granted, right? I posted a tribute to Panera Bread Company, and a link to a-hit-you-in-your-gut-post I read this week. Other than that, and the normal craziness, it's been smooth sailing.

Although, there was one thing this week that was a little out of the ordinary. My jaw hurt. The muscles hurt, it spread to my neck, my ears, then my head...totally impossible to ignore. The short version of the story is that I am now sporting a nifty night guard in my mouth as I sleep. It really helps! I didn't think I'd like it, but although I can't quite describe why...I really do. And I think I'm starting to feel better (today I may even walk on the wild side and go down to two ibuprofen at a time!) And I look amazingly good in it. (Right.) Let's just say if I was going to add something transparent to my nightly wardrobe...this wouldn't be hubby's first choice!

I am looking forward to the long weekend. Tomorrow we will get up early and head to the park to watch the mass hot air balloon ascension as is our labor day weekend tradition. So beautiful. Maybe I'll take some pics to post here. We have a neighborhood party in the afternoon. Sunday - Monday will be some quality time with my hubby. YAY.

Enjoy your weekend, bloggies!

LOL I only drink coffee in company or if I am out and about. At home it is all about the coke or water!

Hot air balloons? Jealous!

I don't drink too much coffee either, but I do drink tea, not very often though. My fave is water. My sister has the same problem with her jaw. I don't know if you has the night guard yet. The hot air balloon ascension sounds fun. Nothing like that around here though. Have a good time!

I am a Mountain Dew addict. lol I will drink coffee if it has lots of sugar and a ton of vanilla flavored creamer.

I too am jealous of the Hot Air Balloons. I am always amazed at how big they really are.
